Czech Petra Kvitova won against Hungarian Anna Bondar 7-6 [7], 6-1 to reach the second round of the French Open at Stade Roland-Garros in Paris on Monday.

“She was playing aggressive and she served very well, which I didn’t from the beginning”, said Kvitova after the match.

“But then she broke me and I found a way somehow back. I played great tiebreak and so this was really helpful for me to win the first set and turn it around from 5-2 down. So definitely it was a good one. Then I was just playing a little bit more freer and it was just better.”

Kvitova, ranked No 34 and seed No32, will play Australian Daria Saville next.
